Starring Alice Fearn, and directed by Julie Atherton, Then, Now & Next is a heartwarming, original musical from writers Christopher J Orton and Jon Robyns.
Struggling with a difficult past, Alex Shaw is attempting to take steps forward. We follow her journey over twenty years, through two loves – young, adventurous idealist, Stephen, and the older, reliable and charming Peter – as she gathers the scattered chapters of her life, in the hope of re-building her story and asking if she will ever be more than just “fine”.
Through Alex’s experiences, her uplifting story questions how relationships can change over time and explores what it takes to truly heal.
Then, Now & Next – Accept what was. Embrace what could be.
